About Giuliana Panieri
I work at the Department of Geosciences at the Arctic University of Norway (UiT) in Tromsø after ten years at the Centre of Excellence for Arctic Gas Hydrate, Environment and Climate (CAGE) at UiT. I am mainly interested in using micropaleontology and geochemistry to study extreme environments, present and past methane emissions and methane hydrate dissociations. I seek to answer questions regarding the timing, periodicity, and intensity of methane emissions with the final goal of assessing their evolution through time and understanding possible connections to climate change in the Arctic.
I have also been working on hydrothermal vents, artificial gas release, polluted mining sites, micropaleontology of sedimentary deposits associated with submarine earthquakes, landslides and turbidites, and geomicrobiology of ancient evaporitic deposits.
Lately, I have been keen on developing new learning tools for Ocean Literacy and supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
